1:03 am
accuse tehran of launching the attack and admitted they didn't know where the weapons were fired from. but we are working to know exactly the launch point. 30 over who over lunch do you eat or the cruise missile will take that talent or ability you for attacking the saudi infrastructure and the so it's really an iran has renewed its denial of involvement in the attack. well it's he was completely clear of these claims and accusations 1st he completely seriously and decisively rejects it. saudi arabia's ally washington is saying off the record it's convinced of iran's involvement but president trump is avoiding direct accusations and being cautious when it comes to questions of u.s. military involvement we haven't heard much that we didn't know but there is there
1:04 am
is a certain. guarantee factor we're really at a board now where we know very much what happened you know there's plenty of time to do some dastardly things it's very easy to start. and we'll see what happens. u.s. secretary of state might pump a 0 has arrived in saudi arabia he's called the strikes on saudi arabia's oil infrastructure an act of war making with the crown prince he said washington wants to build a coalition of european and arab partners to deter and confront threats. or d.w. correspondent public foley l.e.o.'s is in washington good to see you publish these claims from saudi arabia peter backup the white house's suspicions that iran was involved in these attacks and now donald trump has announced new sanctions what else happens now from washington's point of view. hi jared well as you mentioned there and as we've heard in the report as well i mean sanctions appears
1:05 am
to be the path the president donald trump wants to go down let's not forget that the united states already has significant sanctions against iran so this is just ramping up already what we already have in place against tehran but of course president trump earlier when he was speaking was a little bit vague over what was going to happen next it appeared that he wanted to wait and see what came out of the meeting between the secretary of state. in saudi arabia and he said that there would be further news in the coming days and he also basically said that war wasn't an option but at the same time said that the united states. would act if if it needed to sort of showing that american power sort of making and sending a clear message to iran that that was
1:06 am
a possibility but he did stress once again that he didn't want to go down that path of entering into a war with iran let's not forget the president trump is not as a fan of entering into another war like that happened in iraq or afghanistan it was one of his election promises to bring back the troops in afghanistan and he really wants to avoid that at all costs but like i said it'll take this meeting between like pompei o and saudi arabia for him to make a decision now as you mentioned the u.s. . has been meeting with saudi leaders what's expected to come out of these talks. well mike pompei 0 of course is meeting there it's he made a very clear message before he actually landed in jeddah he said that it was an act of war he called a strike on saudi arabian oil facilities on a rainy an attack and he said it was an attack of a scale we've just not seen before now at the same time you know he also will stick
1:07 am

1:08 am
speaking on to other commentators and analysts watching that he was going to be taking a more cautious role he would we didn't really want to come out and say anything yet and it's perhaps a little bit too early to comment on exactly what type of national security adviser he will be what we do know is that he was very successful according to president trump in his previous role the chief hostage and negotiator and and it appears that he really did impress president but early days for the moment. in washington thank you. now to some of the other stories making news around the world today and at least 9 people have been wounded in an attack on a government building in eastern afghanistan militants detonated explosives before gunman entered the building in the provincial capital. afghanistan is on high alert

a phoenix when we think he's finished he rises up again but i really hope the government will change. i think he was a good leader but i think is about time to end the trip through a period. netanyahu is political survival is on a knife edge a political wisit this election may turn out to be the one that broke the spell. well in football 2 of germany's champions league sides got their european campaigns underway on wednesday night with mixed results by and started the group stage with a win as they bait serbian side red star bill grade 3 nil robert leaven dusky scored by an 2nd goal taking his tally for the season to 9 elsewhere it was a tough night to leave the crews and they fell to a 21 defeat at home to lokomotiv moscow that leaves the german side with a mountain to climb already let's take a look at some of the other results now in a thrilling night of european football french champions p.s.g.
